Planning application submitted for 60 BTR homes in Doncaster


A planning application has been submitted for a development of 60 new BTR (build to rent) homes in Doncaster.

Working on behalf of Godwin Developments, our London studio has designed a new scheme on Watch House Lane to include a mix of two and three bedroom family homes.

Architectural director, Grant Giblett discusses: “Located in a suburban area of Doncaster, the site has been redundant for approximately a decade and is in desperate need of regeneration. The homes feature a robust and simple material palette however the architecture form and expression create interest to the character of the development.

“Alongside the new homes, our design allows for the provision of a future connection with the Trans Pennine Trail, as this runs parallel with one of the site boundaries, and links with large open space at the heart of the scheme which will instil a sense of community as well as a safe and vibrant place to live.”

Richard Cornes, managing director at Godwin Developments added: “This will be our first housing development in Doncaster where we hope to regenerate a former industrial site and reinvigorate the local area with a carefully designed scheme to fit in with the surrounding neighbourhood. The scheme includes sympathetically designed homes with open green spaces and ample parking for residents.”
